En Plein Air

I had to get at one plein air landscape in this summer. This was painted down at the newly renovated boardwalk at the mouth of Accokeek Creek. The boardwalk is plenty fancy - time to check it out if you haven't been down there yet!

Quilt Square

Years ago, my friend Francis told me about the easy way to make a quilt square. You sketch out a picture, then make fabric cutouts of the picture, then glue them together using iron on "stitch witchery" glue, then use a tight zigzag stitch around the fabric edges. It's so easy to do it this way! In this square, the Owl and Pussycat are actual little stuffed animals, attached by a ribbon to the inside of the boat.
